The West Yorkshire/Kirklees and Denby Dale quilts were on show at Emley Show this weekend and they went down a storm.
We were able to talk to many of the public who enquired about the collection and how they might get involved. It was surprising how many people immediately understood the intention of our project.
It was also lovely to see some of the participants who came to see their squares in the quilts on display.
WHAT WERE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT?
They talked about the pandemic not being over, it keeps trundling along and many are still concerned about their health.
They talked about the shame of having a Prime Minister like Mr Johnson; the terrible working conditions for NHS Staff; the increase in private companies taking over services; GP appointments… generally upset and deeply worried about the state of the country.
Many were excited about the next round of online workshops we are hosting that people can come to and join the project – either as an individual or as a grou online workshops begin on Thursday 15th September (6.30 – 8.30pm) and are every two weeks up until the end of November.
